Brian Hanrahan leaves the hustle and bustle of Boston University each week and retreats to the Won Buddhism of Boston temple in Somerville, where the resonating sound of a gong indicates the start of meditation services.

Though he was born and raised Catholic, Hanrahan, a College of Arts and Sciences freshman, said he sought another religion when the Catholic Mass no longer struck a chord with him, he started attending Won Buddhism services four years ago in his hometown of Glenside, PA.
